Recommended Posts

Fly with me on Air Neo, I don't care.

As long as I know yer cool (you wouldn't be flying with me if you aren't) it can be a gun of yer own.

South African registration?

What?

So?

 

Little side business I have . . .

I was actually looking for a good pic of an unpresurized Cessna 210 Turbo.

That's the first one I found.

It would be an "N" number if it was mine.

I probably couldn't ever fly public airlines anyhow, my surgeon refused to give me a "verification card" for this:

because I told him he was a quack and threatened to sue him for ripping a muscle in the back of my neck installing it.

 

I'd probably have a meltdown when TSA wanted to "poke thru my stuff" anyhow, I value my privacy a little more than that, you know, something in our CONSTITUTION about unreasonable search.

I dunno. If it's what we have to do to keep the bad guys from getting on board, then so be it. I mean the other alternative is to pass out the pistols and switchblades along with the boarding passes so we're all armed. There is value in that idea. Besides, at my age and girth, it's the only way I can get a perfect female stranger to look at me all nekked.

 

Tip: Leave your cell phone in your shirt pocket, so you have to go through the scanner twice, so she gets a REAL good look at you. [sneaky]

This thread (and the news story behind it) always makes me think of the Spinal Tap scene with the metal detector and the cucumber! #-o

The wife and I have a simple fix for all the Airline crap.

 

We don't fly.

 

No body cavity searches, no invasion of privacy, no price gouging for luggage or any of that piracy.

 

Screw 'em.

 

We'd rather pay Neo's family for the gas and drive, anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It does get a little damp on the way to Hawaii, tho.... :)

There ya go.

 

I absolutely, positively hate to fly commercial - refuse to do so if at all possible.

 

I have several tactics I use to steer the odds a little better my way if I must.

 

 

 

 

I dunno.

... pistols and switchblades along with the boarding passes ...

There is value in that idea.

 

Arm the flight crew.

Problem solved.

I know three commercial pilots who completed the program on their own time, at their own expense.

Constitution? Really? Sorry, no. If you live within 100 miles of a coastline or international border, or enter an airport, you are in a Constitution-free zone. Your rights are suspended. Period. Go to the ACLU website and see for yourself. Step 2 of our march towards official martial law.

 

I have a plan for the next time I fly, if I am selected for the porn scan or genital grope. I guarantee you, it will make at least local news.

Just down the road from me in the Arizona desert;

 

BLM-Warning-Sign1.jpg

 

With Phoenix widely reported as the kidnapping capital of the USA last year, how many reasons do I need to:

1. Load up on guns & ammo at home and travel armed at all times.

2. Get PISSED at the "job" being done by those paid to protect the nation.

3. Personally call and harass ANY business stupid enough to pick up labor in a truck with their phone number on it.

4. Turn Town Hall meetings into disciplinary hearings with a public audience to judge treasonous appointees.

5. Attend every rally or march "they" hold.

6. Piss in the ear of every reporter I encounter at said functions.

7. Remind any citizen who cares that this is still OUR nation until we finish surrendering it.

Refusal of Airport Screening is Internet Hit

Nov. 15, 2010

Associated Press

 

SAN DIEGO - A man who refused a body scan and pat-down search at a San Diego airport has

become an Internet sensation in the debate weighing fliers' security versus their privacy.

 

John Tyner posted a cell phone audio recording of his half-hour encounter Saturday at Lindbergh Field.

 

The software engineer couldn't board a flight after refusing a full-body scan that reveals an

image of what's under his clothes. He also wouldn't allow a Transportation Security Administration

worker to conduct a groin check. Tyner tells the worker, "If you touch my junk, I'm gonna have you arrested."

 

Tyner's blog says he left the airport - but only after being threatened with a lawsuit and

fine for failing to complete security screening.

 

A TSA statement Sunday said body scans and pat-downs make flying safer.

I have been asked three times in the last year if I can take my leg off before going through security? They look right at it and ask me if I can walk without it and it is clearly artificial from the knee down. On each of those occasions when I have explained that I can't take more than one step then I fall down, they have called the supervisor over. How smart is that, My dog has this figured out but them ???

 

The body scanners are just another huge waste of money so that the TSA can justify that they exsist.

Yeah I fly four times a year on vacation and other than the hassle of taking off my shoes and throwing my money and phone in a bucket I've had no problems.

 

 

Oh one time I did get caught smuggling 10 oz. of suntan lotion. Ticked me off that stuff cost a fortune at the resort.msp_cursing.gif

If we could ask the people that were on flights 11 N334AA, 175 N612UA, 77 N644AA, 93 N591UA and the people that were murdered in the twin towers.... My guess is they would be for tighter security at airports.

I wonder what would happen if somebody told everybody in the departure terminal to stop and drop their pants and shake their weiners around. I'll bet that about 20% of people would reach down and start doing it. Its just human nature. A certain percentage of people like to have someone else doing their thinking for them and making sure their lives are "secure".

 

In all my years I don't believe I've ever witnessed more foolishness than what's going on with the TSA. Some mentally disabled guy with firecrackers in his sneakers and now everybody takes their shoes off. Some guy tries to make a bomb with weed and feed and everybody thinks the guy is one step away from blowing up the world.

 

I don't fly much so its not for me to decide, but its pretty comical how scared everybody is about terrorists. :rolleyes:

Seriously? You guys are worried about TSA agents looking at an image of you that looks nothing like a naked human body? It's not like they're doing it "for kicks"...personally, i'd rather them be overprotective than lax.

Flew for the first time two years ago, I got pulled aside and got the extra search. I don't get why everyone gets all defensive about it. I mean its not like I was groped or anything, it took an extra five minutes.

 

I found it hilarious when the lady told me to step to the side for an extra search, I look fearsome [woot]

 

Sometimes...
